What We Hold Dear

St. John’s Lutheran Church is a progressive  and socially-active faith community that seeks to bring the good news of God's liberating grace to our community and to the world. At St. John's, everyone is invited to live, learn and grow together in the love of Christ, and when say everyone, we mean everyone!  All are welcome. 

We seek to live out this broad and inclusive welcome in our worship by offering two different worship experiences and service times. Communion is offered every week at every one of our services along with the invitation that whoever you are or wherever you are on the journey of faith, you are welcome to come forward to receive the bread and the wine, the body and blood of Christ our Lord. At St. John’s, the Lord’s table is open to all believers. You don’t have to be Lutheran to receive communion. You need only accept Christ's gracious invitation. 

As Lutherans, we believe in the Triune God. God created and loves all of creation -- the earth and the seas and all of the world’s inhabitants. We believe that God's Son, Jesus Christ, transforms lives through his death on the cross and his new life, and we trust that God's Spirit is active in the world.

We are part of God’s unfolding plan. When we gather for worship, we connect with believers everywhere. When we study the Bible or hear God’s word in worship, we are drawn more deeply into God’s own saving story.
